Unscripted Adventures

System: D&D 5e

Game Master James

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: George F, Liam M, Freddie, Simon H, Helen H  

Campaign Tone

This is really a “default”, because you can and will overturn or modify it with the decisions you make in Sessions 1 and 2.  But, if pressed, here’s what I’d go with:


System: Coriolis

Game Master Andy

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Richard C, Benjamin C, Kat, Chris J, Carol 

Coriolis is a Sci-fi game where you play part of a ship’s crew. 

What sort of ship depends on what sort of group you are. Are you Free Traders, Mercenaries, Explorers, Agents or Pilgrims. 

Coriolis uses the Year Zero Engine which mainly uses D6s where a 6 means a success and more sixes means a better success. If you are interested in the game you can pick up a starter set for free from the Free league web store or on DrivethruRPG

d&d 5e

Ovion Circus

System: D&D 5e

Game Master Dan C

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

The Keep on the Borderlands

System: Old School Essentials 

Game Master Graham

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Jason, Em, Richard T, Andrew W, Jo 

The Keep is humanity’s stronghold on the borders between law and chaos and will you be the adventurers to clear the way? I plan to run KotB with the modern day ruleset of D&D 1E which was often referred to as the Basic and Expert set. 

With plenty of opportunities for roleplay in the Keep and interacting with its citizens and fast paced dungeon action in the Caves of Chaos, it strikes a delicate balance that leaves many still in search of an adventure that tops it. 

Isla de la Muerte

System: D&D 5e

Game Master Richard C

Venue: Online  every Friday night

Players: Marco, Marc C, Apo, Stig, Andrew W, Carol, Dave H

The Village of Hommlet

System Old School Essentials

Game Master Graham

Venue: Glanville Hall Wednesday night

Players: Andy D, Chris J, Em, Kat and Mark C 

The adventure is a classic approach with an ancient evil disrupting a sleepy village. Players use the Village of Hommlet as a hub to explore the surrounding areas and investigate the evil presence in a sandbox environment.
